Andreasson Lab Team


Katrin Andreasson, MD

Professor of Neurology & Neurological Sciences

Dr. Andreasson is Professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences, and is a neurologist who treats patients with dementia and is also engaged in basic research in neurodegenerative disorders. Dr. Andreasson received her M.D. degree at Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons, and completed her residency in Neurology at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

She carried out her postdoctoral training in the Johns Hopkins Department of Neuroscience, where she began her research studies on the function of brain inflammation in development of neurodegenerative disease.   The objectives of her laboratory research are to identify specific inflammatory pathways that may be targeted to prevent and treat neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.  

Eran Blacher, PhD

Dr. Blacher carried out his B.Sc studies in Life Sciences (2007-2010) and proceeded to Ph.D. in Neuroimmunology (2010-2015) under the Dean’s list honors direct Ph.D. program for outstanding students of Tel-Aviv University, Israel. His first postdoctoral position was carried out at the lab of Prof. Eran Elinav from the Immunology department at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel (2015-2018), where he studied the role of the Microbiome-gut-brain axis in the context of neurodegenerative diseases.
